Every week, Ben Asher hosts New York’s most exceptional comedy show, Arthur Avenue Comedy, bringing you comedy that hits your brain with the force of a fist in the nose. New York’s top TV and club comedians and professional performers perform long sets on an intimate stage that other shows don’t give them time to perform. In addition to consistently curating programming for each week’s show that strives to reflect NYC’s racial, ethnic, gender, and sexual diversity, what makes this show unique is that since 2013, it’s is the only comedy show that still provides all of the artists it features with long play times (over 20 minutes), allowing them to flex their comedy muscles on stage and really pick up their pace, allowing the audience to really see the essence of the actor, rather than just a snippet. The best comedy value in town. Every Wednesday at Clinton Hall Bronx, where you can get the best artisan drafts and artisan food on your table, and put some comedy in your face!
From TimeOut NY: For comedy connoisseurs tired of having their favorite comics shrink their sets to five minutes, Ben Asher’s showcase features full sets and a relaxing atmosphere in which various acts can thrive.
